Canned Bread and butter Onions

Stormy Stewart


If you are an onion lover this recipe is for you. A sandwich’s delight. This is a very versatile recipe. You can use them on sandwiches, with meats like roast beef. It is wonderful on chicken. It can be added any where pickle relish goes like hot dogs, hamburgers, in macaroni salad.My all time favorite is a corned beef sandwich with these onions.
